2 2 What is KPPC?  KPPC is a non-profit organization established in 1994 through a state legislative mandate  Provide statewide technical assistance & outreach programs  Based at the University of Louisville’s J.B. Speed School of Engineering  Represents the University of Louisville as a nationally recognized Center of Excellence  Provides hands-on training for students through the Cooperative Education Program at SSoE

3 33KPPC Mission KPPC is Kentucky’s primary resource to help businesses, industries and other organizations develop environmentally sustainable, cost-saving solutions for improved efficiency. Based at the University of Louisville J.B. Speed School of Engineering, KPPC provides technical information and assistance that is free, confidential and non-regulatory.

4 KPPC Technical Service Model Deliver Technical & Outreach Services P2 & E2 Assessments Brief Assistances On-site “Readiness” Training Outreach & workshops Tech Diffusion = Demonstration & Deployment How do we get to outcomes? Outcomes = Profit Margin for Non-Profit Identified “Gap” between Activities & Outcomes Organizational Behaviors

5 5 Winner 2008 National Pollution Prevention Roundtable’s Most Valuable P2 Program Award (Awarded September 18, 2008) The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is the largest membership organization in the United States devoted solely to pollution prevention (P2). The mission of the Roundtable is to provide a national forum for promoting the development, implementation, and evaluation of efforts to avoid, eliminate, or reduce pollution at the source.

6 6 1.“ Business strategies built around 2.the radically more productive use of natural resources 3.can solve many environmental problems a profit” Amory Lovins, Hunter Lovins & Paul Hawken “A Road Map for Natural Capitalism” 1999

7 7 P2 = Source Reduction  P2 means “Source Reduction” and other practices that reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants through: increased efficiency in the use of raw materials, energy, water or other resources, or protection of natural resources by conservation. Resource Management

8 8 Proactive Planning: Move Up the Hierarchy Disposal Source Reduction & Energy Efficiency (E2) Reuse & Recycling Energy Recovery Treatment Continual Improvement

9 9 Implementing Change  Change requires a combination of: Increased drivers Decreased resistance

10 “Cultural Technology” Some client’s organizations are not ready to explore & implement new E2 technologies or practices Calibrate with the client at the outset EMP allows organizations to successfully address, demonstrate & deploy profitable environmental & energy solutions 7-step process provides internal structure for transition from reactive to proactive 10

11 11 Organizational Capability Performance Metrics Activities Behaviors Outcomes ( Reactive) DRIVERS ( Proactive) { Gap Policy Lead Team Compliance Driven Mgmt Systems Business Planning

12 Improve Market Conditioning  No “buy in” for P2/E2 technologies being “pushed” upon companies with an “unnecessary” additional cost  TDI marketing is “pull” approach that probes industry leaders & experts for their needs, viewpoints & demands Stakeholder groups are a powerful tool 12

13 TDI Strengths for TAPs  Good approach for scoping out new projects that will result in a higher implementation rate  Most companies do not have the technical savvy or time to evaluate P2/E2 technologies  Opinion leaders can “test drive” P2/E2 technologies before committing to full implementation & large capital investment  Demonstrations help companies develop an understanding of what the technology can do and how it works in a real world situation 13


15 EPA’s Energy Star 7-Step Energy Management Process (EMP) Make Commitment to Continual Improvement Policy Appoint Energy Team Appoint Team Leader

16 16 Energy Policy Conserve natural resources Objective Reduce energy usage Target Reduce energy consumption 25% (from 2008 baseline) The Policy Drives Objectives & Targets Environmental performance – measurable results based on the policies, objectives & targets!

17 17 Adopt a Team Approach for EMP  Advising, coordinating & facilitating EMP implementation  Completing EMP tasks & general responsibilities  Gathering, organizing, evaluating & disseminating EMP information  Developing EMP procedures (Controlled Processes)  Representing all functional areas of the organization  Managing the reactions to changes resulting from EMP implementation

18 18 Team Leader to Drive Implementation  EMP Implementation Written Plan Written Plan Plan Schedule Plan Schedule  Plan Execution EMP Implementation Team meetings EMP Implementation Team meetings Management review meetings Management review meetings

19 EPA’s Energy Star 7-Step Energy Management Process (EMP) Make Commitment to Continual Improvement Policy Appoint Energy Team Appoint Team Leader Assess Performance & Opportunities Track & monitor energy use & costs Develop baseline (& benchmark) Identify E2 opportunities

20 20 Resource Accounting Non-product Resource Use Non-product Resource Loss Throughput In Interim/Final Product $ $

21 You Can’t Manage What You Don’t Monitor Elementary School Natural Gas Usage $23,500 more than the previous year Equipment Checked and Reset. Gas Bill $5,000 less than previous month 2004/05 2005/06 2006/07

22 22 Benefits of Energy Balance  Determine which processes to concentrate efforts on for reducing & eliminating energy usage  Establishes a baseline over which efficiency improvements can be tracked & benchmarked  Effective tool to determine & compare economic feasibility of various energy use improvement strategies

23 Identify E2 Opportunities & Solutions  Review information acquired  Technically feasible Will it work and/or change other operations? Special considerations?  Economically feasible (financial protocol) Simple payback Internal Rate of Return (IRR) Return on Investment (ROI) 23

24 Ranking E2 Opportunities  Team evaluates & prioritizes the opportunities identified  Typical evaluation criteria include: Feasibility of implementing goal (easy to hard) Cost Environmental impact(s) Effort requirements (responsible team is identified for each objective & target) Impact to Company mission  Decision matrix or Bubble-Up/Bubble-Down 24

25 Energy Management Process Set Goals Performance goals Clear & measurable goals Guide daily decision-making Goals that: Drive energy management activities Promote continuous improvement Drive effective short-term & long-term strategies Require tracking & measuring of progress Reap financial gains

26 26 Goals, Objectives & Targets  Objectives – overall environmental goals an organization sets out to achieve (attainable) Control Develop procedures & work instructions to Control processes Improve Develop programs to Improve processes Investigate Develop programs to Investigate feasibility for improvements  Targets – set performance requirements to achieve the environmental objectives (reasonable) Reduce energy use 5% compared to baseline year Reduce energy use by 100 MMBtus per widget produced

27 Energy Management Process Set Goals Performance goals Clear & measurable goals Guide daily decision-making Create Action Plan Roadmap to improve energy performance Ensures a systematic process Regularly updated to reflect achievements

28 28 Action plan should:  Identify person & job responsibilities for ensuring plans completion (define roles & provide authority)  Identify specific activities (tasks & sub-tasks)  Set deadlines for each of the identified activities/tasks

29 Energy Management Process Evaluate Progress Review energy use data & activities Compare effectiveness to performance goals Document “best practices” Create new action plans Set new performance goals Implement Action Plan Investigate & verify E2 options Develop & justify capital investment Identify resources Develop a timeline

30 Energy Management Process Recognize Achievements Facility, team & individuals Energy use & cost reductions Emissions/pollution reductions EPA’s Energy Star Program
